During household and garden works you need to wear gloves or rubber gloves. But every 2-3 hours is necessary to remove them and take a break — your skin needs to relax. The skin at this time a good wash, RUB a slice of lemon, then dry and smear with cream. Well, if it will contain dexpanthenol.
For the skin mask is very useful. Apply a universal or moisturizer on your hands, wear cotton gloves and wait 15-20 minutes so that the cream gave the skin intense hydration, and then rinse it with warm water. Such procedures are very useful for the skin, which is also exposed daily to high load. We all somehow come into contact with household cleaning products, quite often my hands, cleaned them with napkins. It is a vital necessity. But all this dries the skin. There may be tightness, flaking, redness and cracks. It is no coincidence that the rough, red hands called "hands of laundress". We need to ensure that your skin remains hydrated. Otherwise it can age very quickly. The first signs of this is dryness and peeling, then the skin begins to thin and wrinkles appear.
Mask for hands should be done as often as possible. Ideally, this procedure will become a daily ritual.
